Columbine Survivor Files Bill To End Gun Free School Zones


Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, who attended Columbine High School during the 1999 massacre, has filed a bill to allow teachers to arm themselves in Colorado’s public schools.

Patrick Neville has long been one of the loudest opponents to gun control in the Colorado State House. After filing the bill, Neville stated “This act would allow every law-abiding citizens who holds a concealed carry permit, issued from their chief law-enforcement officer, the right to carry concealed in order to defend themselves and most importantly our children from the worst-case scenarios.”

As a survivor of the Columbine school shooting, Rep. Neville understands the importance of the Second Amendment more than most. He contends that if faculty members had the right to bear arms in the school, more of his classmates may have survived.

“As a former Columbine student who was a sophomore during the shootings on April 20, 1999, I will do everything in my power to prevent Colorado families from enduring the hardships my classmates and I faced that day,” Rep. Neville said. “Time and time again we point to the one common theme with mass shootings, they occur in gun-free zones.”

While Rep. Neville believes that ending gun free zones will reduce school shootings, many of the survivors of the Parkland school shooting do not agree. Some of the students, likely led by anti-gun operatives, are organizing a national march to demand gun control.

As I’ve published here before, the gun control proposals being demanded during the upcoming march would do nothing but cause more mass shootings, as the evil people committing these murders don’t follow the law, and only exploit laws that the law-abiding follow.
